First Training Northland, servicing Wellsford to Cape Reinga, is brought to you by husband/wife team Mark Judge and Kathleen Mulligan. Both taught in secondary schools for almost 30 years, much of that in Auckland, before they escaped to gorgeous Northland. Mark has years of experience as an outdoor educator and PE teacher, and has engaged in a ridiculous range of sport at national and international level: windsurfing, pole vaulting, rock climbing, mountain biking, mountaineering, white water kayaking, surf lifesaving, surfing, diving (and more but it is getting silly). Kathleen, a music educator and conductor in her non-first aid life, also enjoys outdoor activities and fitness, from ocean swimming, yoga and mountain biking to snowboarding, tramping and weight lifting.
They are proud of the exceptionally high quality of teaching they bring to their courses. They have an ability to engage with their learners, and ensure participants feel safe and encouraged. Their years in classrooms around NZ have enabled them to adapt to the diverse needs of Northland communities.
Laughter and smiles are definitely a hall mark of the pictures they take for their Facebook page.
First aid for the workplace is important for any industry, and our workplace first aid courses have hands-on scenarios to equip you with the skills to manage emergency situations anywhere at work from the office to the factory and any other situation.
Outdoor First Aid equips you to care of a patient for long periods before help arrives. It also means that access to specialised equipment may be unavailable and that improvisation is needed because of your remote location.
